Mechanosensory organs of moles, shrew-moles, and desmans: a survey of the family Talpidae with comments on the function and evolution of Eimer's organ". In this way, the star works as a "tactile eye" where the peripheral rays (1–10 on each side) study the surroundings with erratic saccade-like movements and direct the 11th ray to objects of interest, just like the primate’s foveating eye.

It is unique among mammals in having a muzzle tipped with 22 fleshy tentacles that are constantly moving. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Stimuli cause depolarization of the receptor membrane, resulting in a receptor potential and therefore a current towards the node of Ranvier.

When the outer appendages of the star come into slight contact with a potential food source, the nose is quickly shifted so that one or more touches are made with the fovea (the two lower appendages; 11th pair) to explore objects of interest in more detail – especially potential prey. Mole’s Star is a multi-layered story that will present adults and children alike with opportunities for exploring ecological and environmental issues, such as: to whom do the natural assets of the world belong? Further, the proximity of the star-shaped nose to the mouth greatly reduces the handling time required before food can be ingested and is a major factor in how the star-nosed mole can find and eat food so quickly.

The star-nosed mole lives in wet lowland areas and eats small invertebrates such as aquatic insects (such as the larvae of caddisflies, midges, dragonflies, damselflies, crane flies, horseflies, predaceous diving beetles, and stoneflies), terrestrial insects, [9] worms (such as earthworms, leeches, and other annelids), [9] mollusks, and aquatic crustaceans, [9] as well as small amphibians and small fish.
